The FORWARD to Professorship Workshop

Forward Housing

The FORWARD to Professorship workshop will be held on the campus of Gallaudet University in Washington DC. Gallaudet University is the only liberal arts university in the world designed exclusively for deaf and hard of hearing students. All sessions will be held at the Kellogg Conference Center. Room and board is also provided by the Kellogg Conference Center.


Gallaudet University is easily reached by car, train and airplane. For air travel, three airports are close by although Washington National (DCA) is probably closest and easiest. The others are Washington Dulles (IAD) and Baltimore-Washington (BWI). Washington National is on the metro line: you can take the metro to Union Station (transfer to red line in the direction of Glenmont) and catch the Gallaudet shuttle from there or take a short cab ride. The address for the university is 800 Florida Ave. NE, Washington, DC.
For details on travel, refer to the Gallaudet Directions for Travel.
